Shoppers encouraged to upload favourite snaps to win prizes.
Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls in Dubai are running an Instagram competition for shoppers during Ramdan to encourage them to take pictures of their favourite in-mall decorations and upload to the picture-sharing site, with amazing prizes to be won for the best snaps.
Each mall’s décor provides perfect inspiration for ‘double-tap’ -worthy Instagram images: At Mall of the Emirates, shoppers will see impressive glass and light installations hanging in the Central Galleria, and along the walkways, of classic crescent moons and stars evoking a peaceful and calm atmosphere throughout the mall.
Fuad Sharaf, Senior Director at at Majid Al Futtaim – Properties said: “Ramadan is a very special time for families and friends to come together and join in the spirit of the Holy Month. Our malls provide a perfect location to bring people together and spend their evenings in good company. Each year, we decorate our malls in keeping with the traditions of the month and to reward our loyal shoppers, to create great moments, for everyone, everyday. Our Instagram competition offers a fun and social way for shoppers to spread the joy of the Holy Month, and have the chance to win some fantastic prizes.”
Shoppers at City Centre Mirdif will be treated to evening entertainment of Tanoura dancers in the Central Galleria to accompany the décor of intricate archways, hanging installations and crescent designs.
Dedicated areas within City Centre Deira with traditional Arabic carpets, lanterns and falcons will give shoppers Insta-inspiration to share on social media; while enjoying Syrian folk songs during a festive Aradha Shamia parade, celebrating the Arab culture and the Holy Month.
